Birthday Party slash Housewarming Fiesta

Last night, we had lots of our closest friends and family over to our house to celebrate Drew and Jeremy's birthday, as well as open up our home for the first time for everyone to see. It was a great success! Here are some photos of the event. I would write more, but we haven't turned on our heater yet, and my fingers are so frozen that it is hard to move them where I want them to go on the keyboard!

Here's Drew and Jeremy getting ready to blow out the candles...

... and here is them caught in action. Hope they made a wish!

Here is our new fireplace screen. Isn't it SO much better than the old one? I found it super cheap at Target of all places! Man, I love that store!

And here is a really cool picture of the kitty. Isn't he cute??

Happy Birthday Drew!

Today is my wonderful husband's birthday. I am lame and didn't make him a cake, but I am about to go make him dinner and birthday malts. Diane and Mike, thanks for having him! I am very blessed to have such a wonderful guy!

Check out my Aunt's blog for some photos I took while Drew and I took Grace and Annabel trick or treating last night.

Some things I have been meaning to post about...

So, for a while now I have been meaning to post about all of the cool plants that Jerri got me, and all of the cool pots that Drew got me, and the cool "new" piece of furniture that no one is quite clear where it came from...

I am finally taking a second to update with some photos to show you all what has been going on. Keep in mind, these photos were taken a few weeks ago, so, the plants are much bigger, and the ones that are shown inside have been moved outside due to kitty attacks.

Here is my "new" furniture. Somehow, this came from Meme, but I think it was actually in the 618 house. My friend took it to use when we were cleaning out the house, and since she recently got married, I inherited it back. I really love it and it fits perfectly in a small vacant space I had. Great place for plants, if there were no Clark.

This is a lime tree... a Mexican Lime tree to be exact, and I love it very much. The cool pot came from Amigo's Pottery in the Farmer's Market. I highly recommend them if you are looking for pots, or Mexican tile, or a chiminea. I really want a chiminea.

Here we have a pepper plant and a cilantro plant. They are both outside. The cilantro is almost dead because I have no idea how to take care of a cilantro plant. I think it is getting too much sun.

I have no idea what this thing is, but I love it. I love it by my fireplace, but Clark does not. He thinks it is a chew toy, so, now it is outside.

Here are some of the other plants on my front porch. I have 2 mums in awesome pots, a begonia, a lambs ear, some daisies, lantana, and the one at the top on this picture - have no idea what it is, but it is another one of my favorites.

Ahh, I love our house...
